Not bad but not my favorite. Did like the chicken thigh meat that just fell off the bone though, great for a slow cooker.

Big hit and so easy! I used four large skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs and removed the skin and bones and shredded prior to serving over jasmine rice. I used about 2 cups of broth and a Caribbean curry. It didn't have quite enough kick so we each added some chili garlic sauce to our individual bowls and it was perfect. Served with naan. Yum!

A new favorite! Super tasty. Made with skin-on leg/thigh combo and wings, reduced broth to 3 cups, cooked in a dutch oven on the stove. The curry thickened up nicely. Added 1 T of cumin and skipped the rice.

Based on comments below modified the sauce by adding brown sugar and 2 cups of coconut milk as per another curry recipe. Also removed the lid for the last bit to allow some water to evaporate and the sauce to thicken. Served over rice instead of baguette.

This was definitely pretty liquidy, so I made some rice to soak it up, but I'm not sure why others are complaining it was bland! I thought this was very flavorful. I added a smidge of garam masala like I saw some people did, but I don't know how much of a difference it made.
